Fluoride treatment for teeth: what is fluoride?
Fluoride is a mineral that is normally found in many foods and even water. The tooth’s enamel layer can lose and gain minerals every day in two different ways, through demineralization and remineralization. You can lose minerals in your teeth’s enamel layer when acids that are normally found in plaque, bacteria and sugar attack the enamel in your mouth.
You can gain minerals in your teeth’s enamel layer when minerals like fluoride, calcium, and phosphate are deposited in your teeth from the foods and water that you have consumed. If you are constantly losing minerals in your teeth and never gaining any, then it could lead to tooth decay.
What are fluoride dental treatments?
Fluoride dental treatments are treatments applied to your teeth. Our dentists normally do this after a teeth cleaning by applying the fluoride to your teeth in a gel-form, foam-form, or varnish-form in dosages that are more effective than store bought fluoride treatments. Although the methods for each form of fluoride treatments differ, whether it is being painted or applied through a mouth guard; the treatments are very effective in preventing tooth decay. Fluoride treatments for teeth are recommended every 3, 6, or 12 months depending on your oral health status.
